This research text is the best and most comprehensive one for arts therapists that I have come across so far. I have no hesitation about recommending it to novice researchers in the arts therapies and those who instruct them. It is a volume that supplies much of what arts therapists of any nationality need to know about scholarly inquiry - and does so in a most palatable manner. -- The Arts in Psychotherapy
